RNN (Recurrent Neural Network) by LN Tallur, White Marble, 2022

Join us for an interactive walkthrough of the exhibition Chirag-e-AI that presents contemporary sculptures by LN Tallur, inspired by historical works from the MAP collection.

Chirag-e-AI closes this weekend, making this walkthrough by Sarada Natarajan a special opportunity to explore the exhibition through a new, exciting lens! In this ‘workthrough’, participants come together to generate a layered interpretation of the exhibition, engaging collectively and individually in a series of analytical and creative activities.

By highlighting art historical frameworks and artistic provocations, this unique walkthrough will help you find new ways of looking at the works in the show.
